FTR, if there is significant interest in keeping dhclient around, but agreement 
that its feature set is too limited, it's actually possible I could get buy-in 
from my management to spend a week or two making it better, including porting 
in dhcpv6 support from the ISC tree.   I didn't propose this in my initial 
response to Joerg because I actually don't know the capabilities of dhcpcd, but 
it's definitely an option.
